"My Mondays go something like this: Work on my tennis serve; take a conference call with a Hollywood executive; get my three children to school; browse my favorite Web sites, none of them involving football; check my Words With Friends; and take the dog to day care.
By then, it’s only 10:30 a.m."
- These are the words of Trevor Price, published Saturday in the New York Times.
Pryce, who was drafted by the Denver Broncos in 1997 and was named a member of their 50th Anniversary team, retired in 2011 after one final season playing defensive end for the Jets.
Retirement isn't sitting well with him:
"I have started to lose focus and drive. I’m retired from the game I loved. I’m retired from the perks, like getting a table instantly at my favorite restaurant. And I’m retired from the N.F.L. brotherhood. Passed by. At times, I feel ostracized."
In the peice he wrote for the Times, Pryce opens up to specualtion the idea that he may want to return to football:
"I’m getting used to it slowly and will be content with my new life. That is, until Rex calls."
